debater. i'm just okay. >> president obama is a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> flashpoint libya, the white house on the defensive after reports of both security and intelligence nurse in benghazi before that terror attack. >> standing up, sitting down. >> which ever one you like. >> there you go. >> do whatever they tell us. >> the white house line is you heard the president say, osama bin laden is dead, al qaeda is done, everything is fine in the middle east. this, obviously, contradicts -- ther series of events contradicts that campaign slogan. so, the fact is, that this was clearly an act of terror committed by people who were pretty well trained jihadists. >> more carnage in afghanistan. the taliban take responsibility for a suicide attack that killed 14 today including three americans. we are deployed in the hot spots today with lester holt live in afghanistan and ann curry on the syrian border. >>

this evening in las vegas, nevada, with three days until the first debate between president obama and mitt romney, both campaigns are kicking the expectations game into high gear. here's david plouffe on "meet the press" this morning. >> we have expected all along that governor romney will have a good night. he's prepared more than any candidate in history and he's shown himself to be a good debater through the years. >> joining me now, ann murray, a romney campaign surrogate, former communications director for governor tim pawlenty's presidential campaign. anne marie, good afternoon to you. so now governor romney at his campaign headquarters today for some debate prep. we understand that that debate prep has turned into a full-scale dress rehearsal this afternoon. tomorrow he's on the campaign trail. is he ready for wednesday night? >> i think, i think so. i think it's going to be a great opportunity for governor romney to finally have his chance on the stage. to be up against president obama and i think he'll finally get an opportunity to cut through all the negative noise and the clutte

done the debates during the primary season, having, being a good deba debater, the obama campaign is trying to lower expectations, that was not the case. but what mitt romney did during the primaries as john's own candidate, rick santorum pointed out, was he said whatever he needed to get to or through last night. it was a debate and switch performance on the part of mitt romney where he walked away from his own tax plan and misled the american people about it. where he misled the american people about medicare. where he said under his health care plan everyone with a pre-existing plan would be covered and his own senior aid went into the press room ten minutes later and said, no, that's not true. debates are several cycles, right? you have the debate itself and then you have the morning after and the days after. and what governor romney did last night was say what he needed to say. what the president did was he talked straight from the heart and levelled with the american people about where we need to go. >> anita, perception is reality and the headlines have turned mitt romney's

. and then you had this exchange with david plouffe from the obama campaign after the debate. take a look. >> mr. plouffe, why didn't the president mention tonight that we have had 30 months of private sector job growth? that's a heck of a number considering the fact that there's been so much obstruction coming from the republicans, and even on that, the president seemed timid when it came to pointing out what he's been dealing with with republicans. and also the biggest story since the convention has been the 47%. none of this was mentioned tonight by the president. clear openings to put mitt romney on the defensive. why didn't he do that? >> well, first of all, on the 47%, that's an issue that just about 100% of the country knows about. >> and over the last 12 hours -- >> did you hear that? 100% of the country knows that 47% story. i don't believe that. when bush and cheney got in trouble, they went to their base. and president obama needs to go to his base. i don't mean to interrupt you, thomas, but there's a lot of emotion on the left today. and i think the president is asking the left to sa

are they fitting, aliens? >>> tonight's debate here in colorado a state that president obama won by nine points in 2008, but colorado's become a key battleground in 2010. michael bennett won by only two points. senator bennett joins me now. thanks so much. >> welcome back. >> it's great to be here. i love colorado. we all love colorado. it has been tightening. how is it looking as a battleground the last battleground poll we had was five points for president obama. >> i think that's about right and as you know, the state is the third democrat iic and a thd republican and a third independent. i think the president is aheaded a going to win here. >> what about there are other factors here. you've got what happened in aurora, colorado, now that gun control issue and this heartbreaking ad really on the air right now, i think we've got a little -- we've got an example of this advertisement from one of the victims of the shooting which happened barely 12 miles from here i think, and he's pleading with some -- pleading for gun control for some action. let's watch. >> this past summer in a movie theate

to his advantage. it will be quite interesting to see what happens the next debate when it will be obama who will be the underdog instead. >> there were times when the president made a point, all there was sometimes a little me andering to get there. let me play one of those examples. >> i've got to tell you, governor romney, when it comes to his own party during the course of this campaign, has not displayed that willingness to say no to some more extreme parts of his party. >> that, nick, was one of the tougher times that he actually made a point to mitt romney directly. >> much of the time when president obama made points, it was done in a very professorial way. this clearly is a huge exaggeration on the part of romney. president obama could have made the part of him walking away from paul ryan's own plan on this, that essentially it leads medicare to run out of money eight years earlier. and he could press romney on why on earth he wants to redistribute money from ordinary taxpayers to hospital company shareholders. he didn't do any of that. >> speaking of pressing, which was 47%? wh
